Abstract

The accuracy of the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease early in the course of the disease remains a clinical challenge. Imaging of dopamine transporters with DatSCAN and SPEC tomography contributes to identifying patients without nigral degeneration and thus helps preventing unnecessary and potentially harmful treatments. The cost of these imaging procedures needs to be set against the cost of unnecessary medication.
